Are you organizing a party for your child? Here are a few tips to help you out…

  • Make sure you time it right – and here we are talking mostly about the time your party begins. For very young kids, a party that starts too late in the evening is pointless. Not only will they be tired by then, they will also get cranky and prone to get irritated. This will result in your guests being fussier than they should be. Ideally, a party a little after a lunch, or a brunch party will be a great idea. If the birthday girl or boy still has to have a mid day nap, make sure to plan the party so your guests began to arrive right after their nap. This will help your child feel well rested and be more willing to socialize.
  • Choose the right kind of food – for a birthday party, the cake is probably the main attraction…after the birthday girl or boy, of course! Remember that as this is not a sit down meal, or a party for adults, you need not be very concerned about what you feed your little guests. A pretty cup of fruits, a few sweets, and maybe something savory (pinwheel pizza pops, for example!) will do quite well. Remember that you need not really opt for a cake. You can very well opt for cupcakes if that is what your little one prefers.
  • Have plenty of entertainment – apart from the birthday cake, the biggest thing you need to remember to organize well is the entertainment. Decide according to your party’s budget if you are willing to get entertainment from out (like professional kid’s magicians, kids jumping castle hire, a balloon man or even a story teller for example), or if you are going to pull out your creativity and DIY the entertainment. And though kids are pretty capable of entertaining themselves, sometimes they need a little outside push to break the ice…
  • Keep stock all kinds of fluids – all that screaming, running around and bouncing on jumping castles Sydney will inevitably make the kids at your party very thirsty. Apart from having plenty of water at hand, it’s also a great idea to have fruit drinks and other soft drinks at hand. Trust us, you’ll be surprised at how much water a small group of kids can have in a shirt period of time…
  • Finish up before dark –unlike the other parties you generally might host, you have to make sure this party does not last for a very long time. This is pretty much to make sure the kids invited for the party won’t get over tired…or tired of each others company. Ending the party before dark goes almost without saying, as kids tend to automatically get more cranky at night…
